The Bulls and Heat renew their rivalry in the 2013 Eastern Conference semifinals. The teams split the season series 2-2, with the most dramatic game coming on March 27 at the United Center. The Heat were riding a 27-game win streak, looking to break the all-time record of 33 set by the 1971-72 Lakers, but the Bulls pulled out a 101-97 hard-fought victory. LeBron James complained after the game about hard fouls by the Bulls. That style is likely to play out again during the upcoming series.
